Dr. Tiffany Shields is partnering with oral health care professionals in over 50 countries to celebrate World Oral Health Day today, March 20, 2014.
World Oral Health Day is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance to everyone, old and young, of practicing good oral hygiene.
Raising awareness around the globe is vital as 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime. In many countries throughout the world, access to dental care is lacking and children and the elderly can suffer from debilitating malnutrition due to difficulties eating a varied diet due to pain caused by decayed teeth.
If you want to participate in a worldwide movement for healthy smiles, contact your Jacksonville dentist today for your next oral exam and cleaning appointment!
